City of Hoboken announces:


Discounted garage parking for $5/day in municipal garages will be extended through Monday, January 25 at 8:00pm for residents who are already parked in the garage..

“Thank you to our entire team for working 24/7 to keep our city safe,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “Employees from Environmental Services, Office of Emergency Management, Police Department, Fire Department, Parking Utility, Hudson County, and the volunteers from the Community Emergency Response Team did an amazing job throughout the storm. Thank you to Stevens Institute of Technology for advising us on the risks of coastal flooding from a storm surge. Today and in the days ahead, we will be focusing snow removal efforts on clearing snow emergency routes to ensure the safety of our community. I urge residents to clear their sidewalks and corners and to help neighbors who are unable to clear their sidewalks. I also ask residents to keep fire hydrants clear for the safety of our community.”

Snow Removal Effort Begins
Earlier today, crews focused snow removal efforts to create access to the PATH station and will be prioritizing snow removal efforts in the days ahead on snow emergency routes. Alternate side parking enforcement will be suspended on Monday, January 25 since crews will be working to remove snow from emergency routes.

Property Owners Must Clear Sidewalks/Ramps
Property owners/occupants are reminded that they have six hours after the completion of a storm to remove snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to their property, along with adjoining wheelchair ramps or curb cuts. Snow and ice must be cleared from gutters a width of 2 feet into the street. Please keep storm drains clear to ensure drainage when snow melts. Residents are encouraged to assist elderly or disabled neighbors and to clear snow from fire hydrants.

Public Schools Closed
All Hoboken public schools will be closed on Monday, January 25.
